Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa has said he expected his side's 4-0 loss to Orlando Pirates, the second time they had conceded four goals in the space of a week.

"I think with the team we put out there and the difficulties we are having now, we expected a night like this one," he said.

"I thought they were better than us on the night. Individually they were a lot better than us and we got what we deserved tonight."

Goals from Siyabonga Sangweni, Kermit Erasmus, and two from Lehlohonolo Majoro got the points for Pirates, and means Ajax have now gone four games without a win.

The loss against De Sa's former team means that the Urban Warriors are now 17 points adrift of league leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

Their next game is at home to AmaZulu on Tuesday evening.
